I just drink when I go out to have fun. But I wish I didn't. Without liquor, I am very shy. Talking to new people makes me nervous... I feel like I never know what to say, sometimes I even start to panic. But when I drink, that all goes away. Even after just one drink, I am very social and I usually have a great time. But I can't just drink all the time, so when I am not drinking, my life isnt very fun. I dont really do much because I have so much anxiety. Alcohol is the only thing that really helps, but I know that it also increases my anxiety when I'm sober. Does anyone else drink because of social anxiety? Like I can't image being sober just walking up to a stranger and starting a conversation. But I have no problem doing that when I drink. I just dont understand. I know it takes practice but it's hard to work up the strength to get out there and try. It's a huge problem for me. If you can relate, feel free to add me as a friend. I want to stop and I can use some support. thank you.

Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
